I mainly wanted her out of diapers because of the sheer volume of traveling we are doing this summer. Mainly because it is a cruise ship rule that any child who is not potty trained cannot go to any activities or swim in any pool. My little adventurous fish will have to sit and watch as all of her cousins swim and hang out with the adults as the kids go to the fun activities on the ship. I moaned, groaned and complained about this fact for weeks when I realized the potty training wasn't happening. Little by little my heart began to change. My little Lulu has never had me all to herself. In a few months when the new baby comes my time will be even more divided. I am making the choice to look at this as a true blessing. That I get to spend hours with my sweet girl alone. Give her the attention that Halley got for the first two years of her life. I can sacrifice my free time to pour into her wild and tender heart. I simply cannot wait. There is nothing I look forward to more. No other time in her life will she have all of me. I am planning to savor every second.
What I am not planning on doing is bringing the cloth diapers with me. I am planning on using this entire tub of Butt Paste and hope for the best.
